Saral® Transfer Paper is wax free transfer paper (also known as graphite paper or tracing paper) made for general and specialised use, which allows you to transfer your design from a sketch, pattern, template or free hand to any surface. It makes clean, crisp tracings that can be erased and painted over. It's great for tole painting, fabric painting, fine arts and watercolour painting, quilting, dress making, commercial and graphic arts, architecture, wood working, ceramics, stained glass, metal working and it's acid-free for scrapbooking.
Preferred by artists, dressmakers and now textile artists everywhere !

The advantages of Saral Transfer Paper -
Saral Transfer Paper is wax free so it gives the advantage of erasing like pencil with no smear or smudge. It can be inked or painted over with no skipping or bleeding. The transfer lines can be sponged, washed out or brushed off fabric, and a hot iron will not set them (unlike other tracing or transfer papers made for fabrics.) Saral is economical and can be used again and again.
- Non Toxic - Re-usable ... for years and years - Sheet size 91 cm x 13 cm (36 " x 12")
- Easily removed - Does not effect colour or paint - no skipping or bleeding - Great for fabrics Will not set with ironing. Easily washed out.
Saral Comes In a variety Colors -
Graphite: The all-purpose tracing medium. Excellent for fabric, illustration board and all drawing papers, wood, fabrics, canvas and metal.
Red: Excellent for ceramics and china painting. The lines will fire out. Shows up equally well on light or dark surfaces and mixtures of the two, such as photographs and photostats. May be used on acetate overlays, plastics, fabric and enamel.
Blue: Non-photographic. It's not necessary to clean off Saral blue when work goes before the platemaking camera. Ideal for key lines, mechanicals, paste-ups. For Tole Painters, it leaves a bright, easy to see transfer line. I works beautifully on white or light fabrics too.
How to Use -
Put a piece of Saral® Transfer paper color side down on the surface (fabric, canvas, wood, etc.) to which you wish to transfer a design. Place your design on top of Saral. Using a stylus (ball point pen, pencil, tracing wheel, etc.), follow the outline of the design, apply enough pressure to get the results you desire. You may have to experiment and adjust the pressure to obtain your desired result. One color of Saral Transfer Paper may be better than another for a specific job because of the surface color or texture of the material to which you are transferring the design.
I've been using this piece of Saral paper for about 7 years, and I use it all the time.. Artist - Carley Cornelissen
